PSU-Community Partnership Map
Comprehensive universities in the 21st century interact in a global environment. Over 8,200 Portland State students, faculty, and staff annually engage in community-university partnerships through academic courses, research, and other service efforts worldwide. These partnership activities demonstrate Portland State's commitment to "let knowledge serve" our local, regional, and world communities by practicing, testing, and applying theories to address compelling social issues.
However, important partnerships often remain "invisible" outside of the specific course and community contexts. People and projects can remain disconnected and opportunities for collaboration and collective learning can be missed.
To help individuals and groups connect to larger-scale efforts, Portland State's Center for Academic Excellence and Office of International Affairs have developed a dynamic website, featuring regional, national, and world maps that use Geographic Information Systems (GIS) technology to display many of our community-university partnerships. Currently, the PSU-Community Partnership Map is being upgraded and updated with over 600 newly mapped partnerships associated with PSU’s work in building sustainable communities.
